Everybody in the world is seeking happiness – and there’s one sure way to find it. That’s by controlling your thoughts. Happiness doesn’t depend on outward conditions. It depends on inner conditions.

Keep your mind on the great and splendid things you’d like to do, and then, as the days go gliding away, you’ll find yourself unconsciously seizing upon the opportunities that are required for the fulfillment of your desire. All things come through desire.
